Summer 2015 Garden

IMG_1311Welcome to my summer 2015 garden. Things have been quite active this season (especially with the yellow squash and zucchini – no surprise there,) and now the growth is just starting to wind down a bit. Enjoy this collection of photos I snapped in my enclosure and Grow Camp this afternoon.

First up, the garden enclosure. This space houses my zucchini and yellow squash, so I tried to give them each a lot of room to stretch out while still reserving space for some other vegetables. Right now, the enclosure also includes:  my Amish Paste Tomato (a volunteer) a jalapeno, a green bell pepper, and an eggplant.

I almost forgot, the little guy pictured below is a leftover Wando shelling pea from the spring. He popped up late and I didn’t have the heart to yank him out. He’s looking pretty good, I think!

Last but not least, the Grow Camp. I love this space for my more tender leafy greens and beans that need to be protected from marauding critters and pest insects.

That’s it for my garden this year! What have your best harvests been this season? Share in the comments, or tweet me: @cloverandthyme

Better Late Than Never…

The last few months have been a whirlwind of activity for my family. Homeschool plays, recitals, and the basic ins and outs of life delayed my gardening a bit this year. But I did get my seeds and plants in the ground last month, and things are finally getting green in the garden. Here’s what’s been growin’ this spring. Mouse over for the caption and click for a closer look.

A Grow Camp update is long overdue. The only remnant from the summer vegetables are the bell peppers and they are still going strong, despite the cold evenings we have had lately. So far, my autumn plantings are doing great – red and green leaf lettuce, onions and arugula are all sprouted and growing. I just hope my onions get big and strong enough to last through the winter. Enjoy the gallery…mouse over for captions. I threw in a photo of one of our pretty yellow mums for good measure. Happy Monday!
